In 1974 and 1988 Australians voted in referendums that asked if we would like to approve Local Government.
There was a resounding NO to both referendums.
To circumvent the Will of the People, State Governments brought in state Acts authorizing local councils as a third tier of government.
They completely ignored the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1901, Section 109 that states… When a law of a State is inconsistent with a law of the Commonwealth, the latter shall prevail, and the former shall, to the extent of the inconsistency, be invalid.
When we the People of the Commonwealth of Australia vote in a referendum the result is Constitutional Law. This means that any State law that is inconsistent with it is Null and Void…it has no authority, no power. It cannot be.
It is that simple.
This means that Local Councils are just that….LOCAL COUNCILS. They are not and cannot be a third tier of government. Nor can they levy taxes, no matter how they disguise these taxes with words like ‘council rates’, ‘land rates’, or even ‘administration charges’. They cannot levy taxes….no if’s, and’s, or but’s.
It is up to each member of the Commonwealth of Australia, that’s you and me, to stand up to these unlawful State governments and their little dog local councils and say NO! I will not pay your unlawful Rate or Parking Fines, or Animal Registration Fees.
These and all the other “fees” they charge, have no basis in law…. they are all inconsistent with Commonwealth Law.
When you are hauled into court, as you surely will be when dealing with these unlawful criminals, this article by an English bloke explains how you can stand in honour in court as a MAN and refuse to acknowledge their attempt to turn you into a corporate body they can take money from.
Read this article several times. Comprehend it, and use the arguments it teaches to put the judge, magistrate and local council right where they belong. In the wrong!
We, the People of the Commonwealth have a right and a duty to Lawfully Rebel. Read Article 61 in the Magna Carta, which states we must never bow down to bullies, criminals, and traitors!
